Just ahead of the Bank Holiday weekend, we got together for a fabulous afternoon tea to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee!

Parishioners were treated to some fabulous baking as part of the event, which was organised by our Wednesday morning tea/coffee group. The hall was wonderfully decorated and there was a great atmosphere as we celebrated this incredible milestone in the life of our country. A Queen-themed quiz put our knowledge to the test - most of us were found sadly lacking! But a great time was had by all, and it was lovely to share this occasion as a parish family. At Sunday Masses this weekend we will mark the jubilee with prayers for the Queen, in thanksgiving for her 70 years of faithful service to our country and the Commonwealth.
